When I was young I always looked at the sky and imaged to fly to the moon and see all the planets along the galaxy. I've been always curios about our solar system: planets and their orbits around the sun, moon and stars.

Mapping This Moment
In May 2020, we are asked everyone to document their pandemic experience.

since quarantine hit and i had to move out of my studio space for a bit, i moved back home to work with my two teenagers who were completing school virtually. this is a depiction of my day to day these past couple of weeks once my husband leaves for work.
During the month of May, while sheltering-in-place, I created 41 pages in a banana-leaf photo album with some of the ephemera from our trip to Asia in 2010. We explored everywhere between Komodo National Park to Lhasa, Tibet. In between was Bali, Borneo, Singapore, Hong Kong and China. Each page took 8-10 hours. In the evenings we would reminisce about the memories from the page that I had created that day.
"Mapping this moment" of continuously changing feelings. From anxiety to hope, from creativity to despair.
Here is my take on the last three months spent at home with my 3 year old twins. Initially I was on a rollercoaster of emotions and worry about the virus. Meanwhile the children were too young to fully understand and think we just stay at home and hang out in the garden and that’s life now. There was always great excitement whenever they spotted a plane ( which was few and far between these days). They are convinced their cousin from Melbourne is on the plane enroute to play with them. Oh to be young again!
My illustration features what has helped me get through the pandemic thus far. As I was creating this piece, I got to thinking about what has changed in terms of how people have managed to get through past pandemics. Some things may not have changed, such as washing your hands and wearing a mask, but one thing that has definitely helped make things easier is technology. It is now easier than ever to communicate with people from all over the world. I realize not everyone has access to technology, so I am truly grateful that I can have video calls with my family and friends every week, to help keep me sane.
During lockdown I started illustrated joyful moments to keep the family spirit up and running. Every little detail of this household map is linked with a special moment during lockdown from turning a melon into a bumblebee, to watching pigeons showering in the rain, playing music and learning new skills.
